Hite is at the northernmost point of Lake Powell. Glen Canyon Dam creates this reservoir on the Colorado River. When I first visited in 1965 the lake was still filling for the first time. It filled. Then drought emptied the lake to the point that the lake is no longer even visible at Hite.
Hite is along a little-used Utah route 95. In fact we did not encounter another car going our way on the whole 113 miles from Blanding to Hanksville. We did see a few cars and motorcycles going the other way. The scenery on the way was beautiful. The cell service was non-existent.
